I grew up in Norfolk County surrounded by heritage buildings and structures of all varieties, along with rural cultural landscapes at every turn enriching the community I call home. This helped me to develop a passion for heritage conservation and to ensure that our collective heritage is conserved for future generations, all the while ensuring sustainability is maintained at the forefront of such discussions through the sustainable value of heritage and even existing buildings within the community.
This attachment to the community was nurtured through my family having strong ties to Norfolk County and my being a UEL descendent. In turn, this has given me a special and unique connection to the heritage, history, and culture of Norfolk County. I was trained in Architectural Conservation and Sustainability Engineering at Carleton University. I am now a Structural and Heritage Designer, having recently graduated, with John G. Cooke and Associates Limited.
